Why a Cement Driveway is a Better Option Than Asphalt

The Benefits of Cement Outweigh the Benefits of Asphalt

At D&G we believe that our cement driveways are a better overall purchase than asphalt driveways. Allow us to explain why we think cement driveways are the best option.

The Cost of a Cement Driveway vs Asphalt

It is worth noting right away that an asphalt driveway is typically the cheaper option. Being the cheaper option up front doesn’t necessarily mean it will be cheaper in the long run. Cement driveways last an average 50%-60% longer than an asphalt driveway. Asphalt driveways can require maintenance more frequently that cement driveways.

The Durability of a Cement Driveway

Cement driveways handle more weight than asphalt. Asphalt is flexible and heavy loads can cause damage to your driveway. If you plan on parking large vehicles like an RV, boat on a trailer, or a large truck in your driveway cement is the better option. Heavy vehicles will not cause ruts to form on a cement driveway like they would on asphalt.

The Look of a Cement Driveway

Cement is the standard option for residential driveways. Many simply like the look and feel of concrete over asphalt. Cement can be colored and stamped to create an original look and add even more beauty to your home. if you are looking to sell your home at some point, a cement driveway would  improve the resale value of your home.
